Melting and relaxation behaviors in thin films of high-density and linear low-density polyethylene (HDPE and LLDPE) were examined by microthermal analysis and dynamic viscoelastic measurements, respectively. Melting point (T m) in HDPE and LLDPE films, respectively, increased and decreased with decreasing thickness. In the case of the HDPE films, the amorphous content decreased with decreasing thickness. This leads to that molecular motion of chains involved in the crystalline region is depressed with decreasing thickness. In contrast, although the amorphous content also decreased with decreasing thickness for the LLDPE films, it is not so small. Invoking that molecular motion in the amorphous region becomes active and dominates with decreasing film thickness, it can be understood that T m decreased with thickness for the LLDPE films.
